MetcalfMatt Bush-USA TODAY SportsThe perception surrounding the Cleveland Browns this offseason is that the team is in need of a “true No. 1 wide receiver” to take the offense to the next level.There is likely some truth to that as the current crop of receivers are solid if not spectacular. Although they did take their game up a notch once new head coach Freddie Kitchens took over the play calling.Still, there isn’t a player among the group that is someone opposing defenses have to worry about on a regular basis. Which makes it understandable that, as mock draft season kicks into gear, the Browns will be tied to a wide receiver when they are on the clock in the first round with the 17th overall selection.That is the direction that Vinnie Iyer of The Sporting News takes in his latest mock draft:Metcalf is entering the draft as a redshirt sophomore after seeing his 2018 season come to an end in October due to a neck injury, which is not something you want to see in your first-round draft prospect. He also played just two games as a true freshman after suffering a broken foot.When healthy, however, Metcalf has flashed the talent.He was an All-SEC Freshman selection after averaging 16.6 yards per catch and catching seven touchdowns in 2017. Before his neck injury last season, he had pulled in five touchdowns in seven games, and finished the year with 569 receiving yards and a tidy 21.9 yards per catch average.That production has led some to believe that Metcalf could be a high draft pick as long as his medical report is favorable, an anonymous NFL scout told Yahoo Sports:Metcalf finished his collegiate career with 67 receptions for 1,228 yards, 14 touchdown receptions and an average of 18.3 yards per catch. He did that in just 21 games due to his various injuries.Dorsey has not tipped his hand regarding the wide receiver position Womens Bernie Kosar Jersey , but it does seem likely that the Browns will look to add to the position at some point this offseason. If Metcalf’s medical report looks good, he could be on Dorsey’s radar come draft weekend.Cleveland Browns Training Camp 2018: WR Preview, Part 2 In Part 2 of our training camp preview on the Cleveland Browns’ wide receivers, we look at players with some experience but are most definitely on the bubble.Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports5. Ricardo Louis – Backup Wide ReceiverHeight: 6-2 | Weight: 215 lbs | Age: 24Experience: 3 years | College: AuburnThe hype train was heavy for Ricardo Louis heading into last year’s training camp after he had worked with Brandon Marshall in the offseason. With Josh Gordon set to be out for awhile and Kenny Britt being a massive disappointment, Louis got the best opportunity he could’ve asked for to showcase his talent. It wasn’t enough.Louis started 9 games last year and finished the season with 27 catches for 357 yards. Once Gordon returned from suspension, Louis was completely phased out of the offense for those final five weeks, collecting just 1 catch for 35 yards. Embarrassingly, Louis finished the 2017 season as the Browns’ leading wide receiver.Louis has good speed, but has not been able to overcome his propensity for dropping passes. He was among the league leaders in dropped passes last year, including this one:I don’t think Louis makes the final cut. He was one of the Browns’ special teams gunners last year, and that is his best chance at making the team. But the club added Jeff Janis from the Packers this offseason, and he has experience doing the same thing.Final Roster Odds: 25%Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports6. Rashard Higgins – Backup Slot ReceiverHeight: 6-1 | Weight: 198 lbs | Age: 23Experience: 3 years | College: Colorado StateAfter spending all of training camp working with Duke Johnson as the team’s slot receiver in 2017 Denzel Ward Jersey , and then playing him there in Week 1, the team abandon that strategy in Week 2. They re-signed Rashard Higgins, who was originally cut, and made him the slot receiver against the Ravens, where he blew up for 7 catches for 95 yards on 11 targets. Almost the entire rest of the season, he would get 1-2 catches per week for about 15 yards. Then in Week 17, he blew up again with 3 catches for 68 yards and the first 2 touchdowns of his NFL career.I like Higgins. I think he can be an average slot receiver in the NFL, as he has shown good hands more times than not. Unfortunately, he faces a situation in which Jarvis Landry will have that role clamped down, and I just don’t think he is skilled enough to make an impact as an outside receiver. Higgins should stick around in camp in case something happens to Landry, but I don’t think he will make the final roster either.On the fun side, he did have an amusing “where yall at…?” comment back in March in response to an Instagram post by Jarvis Landry working with some of the Browns’ receivers.Final Roster Odds: 40%Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports7. Jeff Janis – Veteran Backup ReceiverHeight: 6-3 | Weight: 219 lbs | Age: 27Experience: 5 years | College: Saginaw Valley StateJeff Janis was a 7th round pick by the Green Bay Packers in 2014. He has played in 51 games over the past four seasons Jarvis Landry Jersey , but only has 17 catches for 200 yards and 1 touchdown. The area he has made an impact has been on special teams, where he has 22 career tackles and has returned 23 kickoffs for 568 yards (24.7 yards per return).Janis is most known for his postseason heroics a couple of seasons ago, when he caught 7 catches for 145 yards and 2 touchdowns, including 2 bombs from Aaron Rodgers to create of the more amazing playoff Hail Mary’s you’ll see. There are many Packers fans who believe the team should have utilized Janis a lot more during his time in Green Bay. I think his stock will rise in the early parts of training camp.Final Roster Odds: 80%Photo by Rob Carr/Getty Images8. C.J. Board – Backup ReceiverHeight: 6-1 | Weight: 181 lbs | Age: 24Experience: 1 year | College: Tennessee-ChattanoogaC.J. Board was originally an undrafted free agent signed by the Baltimore Ravens during training camp in 2017. During the preseason for Baltimore, Board caught 2 passes for 56 yards. He also spent some time on the Tennessee Titans’ practice squad last year, and then Cleveland signed him to their practice squad heading into the final week of the regular season.Last year, Board said he knew he wasn’t going to be drafted, but teams’ interest in him turned up because he ran a 4.38 40-yard dash during his Pro Day. Baltimore reportedly liked his speed as an outside receiving option and also believed he could compete for a spot on special teams. I don’t expect him to stand out during training camp, but he got included at the end of Part 2 of our preview because in Part 3, there are four rookie players to look at.Final Roster Odds: <5%
